Artist Spotlight: Go Woon Choi's "Daldongne"

Go Woon Choi, Untitled01, Acrylic, 24 x 30"
Go Woon Choi’s newest exhibition at TAG, entitled Daldongne, explores the purpose and beauty in what she calls "the town of shacks".
Go Woon Choi, Untitled02, Acrylic, 24 x 30"
Exploring and expanding on her interest in the structural and sometimes abstract nature of architecture, the town of shacks symbolizes "the warm memory of my childhood" and "vanished things that will not exist anymore". Buildings and apartments filled out the city, and she painted this in various ways from her perspective.

Choi’s interest in mundane, everyday items is rooted in her ideology that “even common objects can appear strong and fantastic under different light conditions and environments" and she transforms ordinary objects into extraordinary visual experiences with both repetition and variation.

The light changes on the surface to give an impression of constant motion, sharing the process of its becoming. Henceforth ordinary objects can provoke intense emotions of strength and energy.

Choi's work will be up until  July 8th.
There will be an Artist Panel Discussion: Saturday, July 1st, 3pm
